Good evening everyone!! Hazel here to wrap-up this month’s blog tour! April was quite another busy month for us OWLS, and we continue to have a blast doing these tours!
We are all part of one race, the human race. “Colors” refers to people of color in anime. For this monthly topic, we will be discussing how people of color or characters of different “races” (a literal alien race) are represented in anime. Some topics we are considering is the dangers of stereotyping, bi-racial characters, and the importance of racial inclusion.
We hoped you enjoyed this month’s tour and look froward to next month’s as well! Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for our May blog tour which starts May 1st!
